Photo Diary: Austin & Marfa

If there was ever a post where starting with ‘Y’all’ was appropriate, this is the one- Y’ALL. I finally, finally made it back to Austin during the first week in March.

In case you didn’t know, I lived in Austin for a few summer months six years ago. Even though I was only there for a few months, I fell hard for the city. After I left to return to grad school for a year, I fully planned on returning upon graduating, but then- a job offer in New York popped up and so the story goes.

To be honest, I think I put off a trip back to Austin because I knew how hard it’d be to leave the city I’d fallen so hard for. It also seemed like a convenient trip when I lived in the US, and so I decided to prioritize visiting other places during my years in New York.

Even though I was only back in Austin for a few days, it was just enough time to remember all of the reasons I fell in love with the city in the first place. Can’t wait to share more about our trip, and my recos for visiting this eclectic slice of Texas.

Sandwiched between time in Austin, we headed to Marfa, a west Texas desert town, that is in one word: magical. Marfa’s charm is tough to describe: it’s small town life, big sky country, remoteness, and this sense of everything feeling less urgent. It was, without a doubt, one of my favorite trips I’ve taken in recent years.
